Benefit held for 3-year-old boy with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Thursday, March 07, 2013

A Brooklyn community came together to help the family of a sick child get closer to a cure for their son.

Close to 600 people attended a fundraiser for Pietro Scarso in Mill Basin on Thursday night.

The 3-year-old suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a fatal degenerative condition.

The event raised money for research for treatment and hopefully a cure.

The proceeds from the event will go for medication for Pietro that slows muscular degeneration and new research grants.
